Another weekend is here and I long for Japanese
food at affordable prices. I’ll head to Sakae Sushi
Bukit Tinggi as parking there should not be a
problem as compared to other bigger shopping
Sakae means growth in Japanese and according to
their website the name was chosen because it also
sounds like Sake, the traditional Japanese wine.
The first thing you will notice here when you step in
is that every table has a computer screen. Just click

tea. You will be given a tea bag and you will have to

batter for the tempura was a little too thick for me.
The chawanmushi on the other hand was soft and
I also took some food from the belt. The edamame
was a big regret as it was way too soggy.
Mochi-typically eaten during the New Year in Japan
is made of pounded glutinous rice and then moulded
into shape. This one tasted excellent and I ate up all 3
Ajitsuke idako (seasoned baby octopus sushi) had a
strange flavor and I didn’t really like it.
This is hukka wakame –a type of edible seaweed
which has a subtle sweet flavour. I ate it all up
